About Abrasive Wheels Training
This online abrasive wheels awareness course is ideal for anyone who uses power tools that incorporate an abrasive wheel such as angle grinders, petrol cut-off saws and bench or disc grinders. It will help those who use this equipment to comply with PUWER 98 regulations and protect themselves from potential hazards that could occur when working with these machines. The course covers abrasive wheel characteristics, safety in grinding machine operations, wheel mounting procedures and issues, extra considerations for portable or hand-held grinders and PPE requirements.
Incorrect or inappropriate use of abrasive wheels can lead to serious and debilitating injuries for those who operate them such as severe cuts and abrasions, burns, loss of eyesight and even death. They also pose a fire risk due to the heat and sparks they generate during operation. They can also pose a hazard to health by producing dust, fumes or RCS (respirable crystalline silica) which requires specific controls including use of PPE and good ventilation.
This abrasive wheels training course has been designed to be completed at any time and from any location with internet access, and is perfect for organisations who have large numbers of users as it can be easily deployed across departments, locations and sites in just a few clicks. When complete, each user will be able to instantly download their personalised Abrasive Wheels Training Certificate which can be used as proof of completion for their audit trail.
